Camp Shalom Christian Camp and Retreat Center is located in the wooded river bluffs near Maquoketa in eastern Iowa. Less than an hour’s drive north of the Quad Cities, this 311-acre gem is full of woodland trails, high and low challenge course initiatives, archery, sports, and canoeing on the Maquoketa River. The camp considers itself as an outdoor Christ-centered ministry rich in worship, learning, fun and fellowship experiences that inspire people of all ages to live fully in the Spirit.
Camp Shalom first opened its doors in 1976 under the leadership of St. Paul Lutheran Church of Davenport. The camp was originally intended to support the youth that attended the congregation. By 1995, “Camp Shalom” was adopted as the name of the camp, and the people of St. Paul congregation voted to open the camp to all Christian people, regardless of congregation, creed, sex, age, or national origin. The camp is now diversely supported amongst all Christians, with participants and volunteers originating from over 110 congregations throughout the Greater Quad-City area.
